You know you've struck a nerve when folks like kim_kay#$%$ resort to ad hominem arguments! The Galaxy S5 proves, yet again, that Samsung has not one original bone in its body and knows nothing about aesthetics.
What a hot mess of a phone! Thanks for setting the bar low, Samsung. The iPhone 6 will leave this piece of junk in the dust.
One word to describe it: UGLY!
They've set a really low bar for Apple to jump over! iPhone 6 will finally shut up the Samdung naysayers once and for all.
There's no rstional basis for this stock to be trading more than$100/share based on future earnings potential. Not saying it will go that low,but there's no real floor on a stock this speculative in nature.
Meant to say "no more than $15 billion."
As I said, wishful thinking won't move a stock upward. LinkedIn is a great company but the market cap should be more than $15 billion based on future earnings and growth potential.
Wishful thinking won't make this overvalued stock go back up. It will eventually get back to 215... In 2017.
You may be right, but what was really overdone was for the stock to have been where it was in the first place. It's just getting back to a more sensible level based on the reality of how much money they can earn during the next several years. The stock should never have gotten this high.
LinkedIn provides a valuable service to the corporate world and they have indeed found a way to monetize. However (and this is a big however), LinkedIn will never be able to generate profits worthy of its current stock price. Even $100/share is a stretch. The current price of $192 with a market cap of $23 billion and a P/E ratio of 836 is simply absurd.
LinkedIn is a great company, but the stock price has been way overvalued for way too long. Even based on the most optimistic of future earnings projections, the stock shouldn't be trading for more than $100/share.
We're the ones laughing at you! Please stop cluttering up this message board.
Doug Kass says what he says solely to suit his own trading purposes. A notable example occurred just after the introduction of the iPhone 5 in October of 2012 when he wrote a long-winded essay likening Apple's latest smartphone to a toy because it was "too thin and too light." I'm not making this up! He also wrote when visiting Apple's flagship store in midtown Manhattan, he found it to be empty of customers. Bottom line: he's a liar and a manipulator. It amazes me that anyone takes him seriously, but apparently some people do.
Just keep shorting Apple (as you claim to have done when the stock was trading at $530) so that we can continue to profit from your stupidity.
Your repetitive diatribes are growing more and more tiresome. For the record, Apple never discloses specific deal terms with regard to newly signed wireless partners. You clearly have no clue what you're talking about. Weren't you the chump who shorted Apple recently at $530?
So true! Doug Kass has an insidious penchant for spreading false information to suit his trading needs. In October of 2012 he wrote a long piece about the iPhone 5, asserting that it was "too thin and too light" to be taken seriously as a professional smartphone! He also claimed that he observed sparse crowds at the flagship Apple Store on 5th Avenue in New York City when nothing could have been further from the truth. These self-serving lies were shameless attempts by Kass to bring down Apple's stock price from its all-time high. Sadly, Kass' lies and innuendos helped achieve exactly that nefarious goal.
